Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary Doctor of Ministry Thesis-Project
Abstract: The significant challenge of postmodernity to the modern evangelical church calls for response. The deconstruction of hierarchal structures and the emphasis on diversity, community and mission provide a doorway for furthering partnership and interdependence (mutuality) between men and women. By researching ministries created in the postmodern age that are outside but support the evangelical church, this thesis seeks to demonstrate a progression in mutuality from the modern to the postmodern age. It further seeks to show that this advancement is in keeping with the transformation of God’s radical new community created in Christ Jesus.
